Iislamabad - The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has started carpeting and patchwork of different major roads, service roads and crossings, which have been damaged by recent rains, across the federal capital.

Maintenance is in progress at fast pace and the CDA’s machinery pool organization (MPO) remained busy here on Saturday to complete the task at the earliest as directed by the Chairman CDA Maroof Afzal, a spokesman of the authority said.

The chairman CDA has deputed the senior officers of the authority to monitor the ongoing carpeting and patch work. The MPO directorate apprised that carpeting work at the Faizabad portion of Expressway has been completed.

Likewise, the work on the extension of road at I-8-Shakarparian crossing is in progress. Every effort is being made to complete the work on a dedicated lane being constructed here to facilitate the students and the visitors of the schools in the area by Sunday evening.

The MPO directorate informed during the inspection by the senior officers that rehabilitation work in different areas of the federal capital was being carried out as many of the roads were damaged during the rains and some other roads needed necessary patchwork to ensure smooth flow of traffic.

The chairman CDA has directed that the internal resources be utilised for carrying out maintenance, carpeting and patchwork of the roads and service roads, and the relevant formations of the authority should collaborate their efforts for early execution of the work.

He said that CDA was committed to providing improved facilities to the residents and all possible resources would be utilised in this regard.  He also directed the environment wing of the authority to improve the medians, green belts and flowering on different roads, avenues, residential sectors and commercial areas of the federal capital.
